Seborrheic dermatitis is a common non-contagious condition of skin areas rich in oil glands (the face, scalp, and upper trunk). The normal skin yeast, Pityrosporum ovale, lives in oil-rich skin regions and plays a role in this disorder.
Seborrheic dermatitis occurs in 3–5% of the population. The problem may be a bit worse in men, and starts after puberty (although babies have a version called cradle cap). Seborrheic dermatitis peaks around the age of 40 and then may improve. Severe seborrheic dermatitis is seen frequently in people with Parkinson disease, and other with central nervous system problems, and in those with HIV infection. Seborrheic dermatitis seems to worsen with stress, winter, and infrequent shampooing.
